CompExpert :

try this

click on "Virtual Machine" in the VMware menu and keep it active/open/expanded while you click and hold the 'option' (alt) key on the keyboard. This will cause the options on the drop down "Virtual Machine" menu to change. 'Shut down' will change to 'power off'. Click on 'Power off' to fix the problem.
